The movie was a massive success at the box office, grossing over 10 Crore rupees and creating a sensation in the Telugu film industry. The story revolves around Bangaru Raju (Chiranjeevi), a young and unemployed man who is determined to make it big and prove himself to the world. Bangaru encounters the sweet and innocent dancer Bhumi (Nagma) who is being mistreated by her stepmother and stepbrother. Bangaru helps Bhumi out and soon they fall in love. However, their happiness is short-lived as Bhumi's stepbrother tries to kill Bangaru.

Bangaru survives but loses his memory in the process. He is picked up by a local wealthy family and mistaken for Sivayya, a distant cousin who owns a vast empire. Raj Kotaiah (Raogopalrao), the family's patriarch, welcomes Bangaru into his home and assigns him a position of authority. Bangaru, who now believes he is Sivayya, is confronted with a range of great personal, societal, and professional difficulties. He deals with his newfound role while also trying to regain his memory and reunite with Bhumi.

As the story unfolds, he is pushed to his limits, almost losing his life in the process. However, in the end, he discovers his true heritage, remembers his past, and saves his family from doom. The film is famous for its dynamic action sequences, heartwarming love story, timeless music, and Chiranjeevi's convincing performance.

The movie features several hit songs, such as the chart-topping "Bangaru Kodi Petta," "Kitukulu Thelisina," and "Pilla Pillagadu." They were composed by M. M. Keeravani and were highlights of the film. There is also a tremendous performance by Nagma, who portrays Bhumi with elegance, innocence, and charm. Raogopalrao proved that he was one of the finest character actors of his time.

Additionally, the film explores a range of socially relevant topics, such as the caste system, family values, and feminism. In a memorable sequence, Bangaru challenges Raj Kotaiah's casteist mentality, calling him an outdated traditionalist. The movie's progressive stance resonated with audiences across the country, leading to it becoming a cultural phenomenon.

In conclusion, Gharana Mogudu is a Telugu film classic that has stood the test of time. It's a perfect blend of romance, comedy, drama, and action, featuring one of the greatest Telugu language artists, Chiranjeevi.
